Stonehenge Aotearoa, New Zealand

Stonehenge Aotearoa is a modern adaption of Stonehenge that is used mainly as a teaching tool both for ancient and modern astronomy. Since it is at a different latitude and longitude from the original Stonehenge, some measurements had to be changed to preserve certain astronomical properties. Aotearoa is the Māori name for New Zealand.
